Class AA girls: Lady Gremlins blast Brookville, 57-23

By Rich Rhoades

The game was decided pretty quick as the pressuring defense of the Karns City Lady Gremlins overwhelmed defending champion Brookville in a 57-23 rout in the District 9 Class AA quarterfinals at Clarion Area High School Thursday night.

Karns City (22-1), which forced 40 turnovers, led 24-2 after one quarter, 37-5 at halftime and enacted the PIAA Mercy Rule’s running clock by the end of the third quarter to beat the Lady Raiders (8-15) for the second time this year. The Lady Gremlins won 63-27 at home in December.

Next up for the Lady Gremlins are the only team that beat them this year in the semifinals next week. Redbank Valley advanced Thursday night with a win over Moniteau.

Junior Shanel Preston led Karns City with 23 points. Annie Hegedus scored 12 points on four 3-pointers. LeeAnn Gibson, the team’s top scorer at over 17 points per game, wasn’t needed to score that many, finishing with seven points and 10 rebounds.

Brenna Dworek scored nine points to lead the Lady Raiders. Hali Olson scored five points and grabbed 13 rebounds.
